Hack: don’t have sliders? Use a wash cloth on a hard floor!
Squat With Slide
A great exercise to target the lower body and your muscle endurance! Place the slider under your right leg. Come into the bottom of your squat position and hold. While you’re squatting, slide the right leg out and in without breaking your squat. Perform ten repetitions before standing up and repeating on the other side.
Plank Tuck To Abductions
Combo exercises are a great way to hit more than one muscle group (and combo exercises awesome benefits). Come into a plank position on your hands, place the sliders under your feet. Moving against the pressure in the sliders, raise your hips slightly and bring your knees to your chest. Push the legs back out into a plank position and then abduct (spread them) out to the sides using your glutes. Bring them back into the start position. That’s one repetition.
Lying flat on your back place the sliders beneath your heels. Place your hands out to the sides and use your glutes to lift your bum off the floor without excessively arching the low back. Slide against the floor as you bring the heels into your bum. Push your heels back out without letting your bum touch the ground. Perform 10 repetitions.
Come into a plank position on your hands. Bring your left knee into the chest and then twist your body to the right. Return the leg back to the floor in plank position and repeat with the right leg. Perform eight repetitions on each side.
This legs and core circuit workout is simple to perform at home when you’re too busy to hit the gym. The exercises use your bodyweight and the floor as resistance against you. The at-home workout takes under fifteen minutes and will leave your muscles feeling worked.
Take your time during the exercises to really contract and recruit the necessary muscles as this will give you the biggest bang for your buck in results. All you need is a pair of sliders (like these ones from ProSource) and you’ll be able to target your muscles in a whole new way.
